John Lyon’s Foundation is an educational foundation, consisting of three main elements - Harrow School, John Lyon School and John Lyon’s Charity. Its aims are based on its history and culture and the charitable intentions of its Founder, John Lyon, and his belief in the intrinsic value of education and the possibilities and opportunities that this can bring.
John Lyon's principal vision was the establishment of a school. Today, this vision finds form in two distinct schools, Harrow School and John Lyon School, the latter of which will, next week, hold the first event in its annual lecture series.
Talks-on-the-Hill opens at 7pm on Wednesday 6 February with an evening of ‘space’ - from outer space to creative space via outdoor space - with seven short lectures looking into and around each speaker’s interpretation of the theme. One of the speakers will be Dr Chris Crowe, Head of Astronomy at Harrow, who will talk about 'Black Holes and Exploding Stars - the cosmic life cycle'.
The event is open to everyone on the Hill and from the wider area, and will be held in John Lyon's Boyd Campbell Hall. For more information, visit www.johnlyon.org/whats-on.
